In a previous post I think I said something to the terms of “I wouldn’t change most things” my bad, that’s not what I meant.  I’d change a lot of things, as long as I end up alive & with Kim.  I wouldn’t have drank so much when I was younger, I’d be more health conscious, I wouldn’t have hurt anyone’s feelings, etc.  Hindsight is 20/20.  I think most people would write a letter telling their younger selves saying what to do & what not to do when they were younger.  Unfortunately there’s no operators manual for life.  You’re born & pretty much hit the ground running with help from your parents or whoever it is that’s taking care of you.

I called iTunes support twice to deal with a file that in the end was an error they had never seen before.  When we figured it out on my 3rd call Saturday morning (2 Friday, 1 Saturday) it was on a preorder I had.  The best they could tell me was to wait for the entire album release & call back then if there are any issues.

Friday I finished doing some stuff around here, then sat down to watch baseball that night.  Saturday Kim & I slept in, until 7:20 am!  Kim went out for a run, while I was on the phone with iTunes trying to clear up a problem I had with one of my preordered albums.  Kim came home after grocery shopping in time to catch the end of the afternoon ball game.  We went over to Sherry & James’ place to sit on the deck since it was nice out.  Stayed for some tasty BBQ ribs, FANTASTIC!

Sunday just hanging out with the boss.  Lazy day!

 

IF YOU’RE HERE FOR THE UPDATE, THAT’S ALL THAT I HAVE FOR YOU TODAY.

 

Foo Fighters with Perry Farrell live.  LANGUAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Ah Facebook, that awkward moment when you get out your yearbook to see if you know the person that sent you a friend request.

 

Slash, Ace Frehley, Lemmy, & Dave Grohl playing Motorhead’s “Ace of Spades”

 

I think Bruno Mars is handling his fame & fortune very well.

I had preordered the Queens of the Stone Age album & I am having problems in that the 2nd single, released on Thursday, will not show up in my iTunes although it shows that I’ve preordered it.  The first single had no issues when I preordered it though.  I guess I’ll see what happens on August 25 when the full album is released?

Truth be told, I would have liked to avoid my computron this week entirely!  That could be my biggest reason for not having a cell phone.  Holy sensory overload Batman!

I fell asleep to “Dream Theater” the album “Black Clouds & Silver Linings”

 

I exercised to “Alice Cooper” the new album “Paranormal”

 

Some stuff to do around the house & it feels like an “I Mother Earth” day, the album “Blue, Green, Orange”

 

Exercise total this week, a 4 day week; 400 crunches, 400 leg lifts, 295 pushups, 160 back flexes, & 20 minutes of planking!  Every day starts with me exercising, no shower, dressed in workout attire, & no breakfast.

I was playing with the pushup number, 75 is probably an achievable number per day.

Well I’m alive, cancer didn’t win.  Let’s get things straight.  I did nothing to sway the outcome of this cancer garbage.  My body, nurses, doctors, & Kim were not giving up on me!  I was in a coma for a month, then slept 23 hours a day until early 2009.  Waking up only for pain killers & randomly awake for very light physio.

When I moved to the WRC, I wasn’t in the know as to what was ahead for me or why I couldn’t continue my therapy at the hospital?  I do remember, while sleeping at the hospital in 2008, asking Kim in a dream if she could take over, because I needed a break.

The day I passed out at work was Tuesday, February 5th 2008.  6 days after my 28th birthday & I’m pretty sure I gave myself the worst birthday present ever!  BAZINGA!

I blacked out completely after Kim came into the Ambulance in the parking lot at my work.  I do remember a doctor checking my reflexes by pushing a pen cap on my fingernails to see if I’d pull my hand back from the pain.  I did & had some nasty thoughts about smacking the doctor upside of their head it hurt so much!  Other than that, I was out for a year or a little bit more.  Great company for Kim, her sister was with her for a lot of it………………I think?

I have a job, to make myself better!  I hate spending too much time on the computer.  Doing this blog 3 times a week is much better for me & likely for you as well!  Don’t think that I do nothing all day.  I exercise for 1.5 – 2 hours first thing in the morning, have breakfast, shower, usually tend to the dishwasher or whatever needs to be done around here, lunch is in there somewhere, I write portions of the next blog post, finish up whatever chore I have to do & hit the couch by 2:00 pm or 3:00 pm.  Somethings take a bit longer for me to do, & somethings I can do just like I used to.  If it’s a new task or in a different environment, I’ll need some time to figure out if I can do it or if I’ll need help.

 

THAT’S ALL FOR THE CANCER TALK FOR NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

For most Americans, this was Barenaked Ladies 1st album, it’s actually their 5th album.  Their debut full length album was “Gordon”.  My first concert at the age of 12!

5th album, released in 1998

1st full length album released in July of 1992.  The artwork was different when I bought the CD!  A few weeks more than 25 years ago!

 

13 years ago Alter Bridge released their first album “One Day Remains” & Donnie wasn’t president.  A much simpler time!

I have this 3 CD bundle on the way from Alter Bridge in September B-Side, rarities, & a live album as well.  Not on iTunes, but the actual CDs.  There is a package with a documentary DVD but I have the 10th anniversary box set with numerous long interviews from each band member.

Metal fans, Canada has something to bring to the party!

http://loudwire.com/best-canadian-metal-bands/

I’ll add 3 to that list!  “The Agonist” from Quebec, “Into Eternity” of Regina, & “Third Ion” from Regina.  All touring bands.  Into Eternity has played alongside big name metal acts such as “Megadeth” & “Dream Theater”

 

OK, I’m more than ready for the new Queens of the Stone Age album on August 25th!

2nd single

1st single

 

I’m surprised America still has allies?  Donnie has pretty much any discounted &/or shamed every country possible.

You had to know this type of thing would happen with Donnie as president.  WWIII was easily a possibility with him leading America.  Does he have an off switch?

 

I’m not ending this with news about Donnie.  How about Helium infused beer!

I’ve shared this & tagged many people on social media!  Many more could easily be added though.  I’ll find this beer one day!

I fell asleep to “Halflives” the album “Empty Rooms”

I exercised to “I Mother Earth” the album “Scenery & Fish”.  Close to 8 minutes long!  Perfect for my planking with rest periods & then lying on the floor exhausted.

100 leg lifts, 100 crunches, 50 one day then 60 pushups the rest of the week, 5 minutes of planking & 20 back flexes a day.  400 leg lifts, 400 crunches, 80 back flexes, 20 minutes of planking, & 50+60+60+60=230 pushups over 4 days.

Now I need to get my butt moving on some cardio, said nobody in their right mind.  If Kim & I get up & just go walking with my walker, or to the recumbent exercise bike, first thing in the morning on either Saturdays or Sundays, I’ll do it!  I want to get up & get it over with, then start my day without the constant thought that I have to squeeze in some cardio.

I really don’t take MY cancer too serious now.  Whenever Kim takes me to any type of cancer appointment, in my head I try to downgrade it……..I’m fine & I’m alive, & I laugh at MY cancer.  I don’t ever need to think of it as this terrible life changing event.  I go for a blood test, needles don’t bother me, I turn to Kim while the nurse is putting the band around my arm & say to Kim “Hold me Kimmy, pwease”? Then all 3 of us get a little chuckle!  If you can’t laugh at yourself, how do you intend to laugh at anything?

I increased my pushups by 10 every day from 40 to 50, 2 sets of 25, at some point I lost my mind?  As of Tuesday, I now do 40 back flexes & 60 pushups (in 3 sets of 20).  Wow I’m out of shape.  On the other hand, I was wearing a T-Shirt the other day that was tight in the arms & shoulders.  Maybe this exercising is doing something?

 

THAT’S ALL FOR CANCER TALK!  HERE COMES THE POPCULTURE STUFF!

 

I’m sorry, I just can’t stop laughing.  My sides hurt Hahahahaha!!!  I feel sad for those that didn’t vote for him, like 70% of Americans.

Rock’s not dead, it’s just not at the forefront of music right now.  Hip-hop & pop music have taken that spot for now.  Lots of people prefer the radio friendly pop, hip-hop, or country music.

I guess Tim Burton is making a live action “Dumbo” movie.  A movie I can pass on.  I’m not a fan of these reboots at the moment.  I’m old enough to have seen the original!

Are Guns n’ Roses recording a new album?

https://www.alternativenation.net/guns-n-roses-original-new-album-plan-will-surprise-you/

I’ve got 1987 debut album “Appetite for Destruction” honestly I’ve listened to it all the way through once.  It’s in the closet behind me, not even on my iTunes or iPod.  I have no desire to listen to it.  Whoever announces at the Roughrider games found a different song to play before the game the last 2 seasons, but this year, in a new stadium, they went back 30 years to play “Welcome to the Jungle” again?

I go to the Saskatchewan Roughrider games for one reason only.  Not the music, overpriced food & beverages, the half time show, etc.  I go to watch a football game.  I must be a sucker for punishment?  I watch the Riders & the Toronto Blue Jays.  Neither team will be winning anything this year, despite me yelling/coaching from my couch or seat at the Rider home games.

Well, I’m done for the week.  I have a Toronto Blue Jay game to watch in ½ hour.  I guess 65,000 people in Boston have the day off?  Now the blog will go back to Sunday, Wednesday, & Friday.

IT SURE FEELS LIKE FRIDAY, YET IT’S NOT……………..OH DE PLUF!

 

I fell asleep to “Dream Theater” the self-titled album from 2013.  They have released 2 since then & a pile more before that.

 

I exercised to “Counting Crows” the album “Recovering the Satellites”

This is the album with “Mr. Jones”.  I bought these two & 3 other ones that did nothing for me, except the live album I own

I was feeling nostalgic the other day & played these 2 albums on my iPod

Pearl Jam’s “Backspacer” was released 7 years ago.  Most casual fans had mixed emotions, I’m a casual fan of Pearl Jam it was VERY radio friendly & VERY calm.  I like this album, they’ve released other albums that are very calm & don’t work for me.  I have all of their albums on CD, the most recent one from iTunes & I really like their music, I just forget there’s more than the album “V.S.” & “Yield”

 

Big Wreck shared it……

 

I missed a bit of this, interesting though.  Seems like documentary makers are trying to cash in on the Netflix series “Making a Murderer” might as well strike while it’s hot!

 

Last Week Tonight with John Oliver.  I like superhero movies, but I can see that there are fewer options for those that don’t like them.

 

Kerry King of “Slayer” weighs in on ”Anthrax” collaboration with “Public Enemy”.  Personally I would like Kerry King to learn how to do a guitar solo in key?  I’ve never been able to play a lightning fast guitar solo & I’m not well versed on the key of a song, but I know when something is out of tune.

I fell asleep to “Trivium” the album “Silence in the Snow”

I exercised first to “Queens of the Stone Age” the album “Rated-R” then “Kyuss” the album “Blues for the Red Sun”

You’ve probably never heard of “Kyuss” unless you’re a huge fan of “Queens of the Stone Age” or “Foo Fighters”. “Kyuss? Was Josh Homme’s group before he started “Queens….”. If you watched the ‘Sonic Highways’ mini series Foo Fighters have a song called “Outside”. “Kyuss” practiced in the middle of the desert out side of L.A. because they were too loud to rehearse in a house, to close to neighbours.

I use both. I don’t understand or care to understand how anybody can be just on facebook? Why do you need an email for an email with limitations? Not everybody’s on facebook? Very few people send a private message on facebook. Yes, social media has it’s place. Most of the info on this blog is from facebook, that being said I could likely get all of this info by subscribing to 30+ newsletters. I assume the only problem with that is that they would all come at the end of the day, then you’d be getting yesterdays music/pop culture news. I guess all I’m trying to say is email vs. facebook isn’t a contest, they both have pros & cons.

NO, I DON’T HAVE A SIMPLE LIFE BECAUSE I DON’T HAVE KIDS

Today’s workout was brought to by the letter “L”, as in Lamb of God’s album “VII: Strum Und Drang”

I actually don’t have enough hours to complete everything I want to get done between exercising, having a healthy breakfast, lunch, taking care/playing with Brewster & writing these blogs, I don’t hit the couch until about 4:00pm. I’m not saying that being a parent isn’t easy, that’s a full time job, 24/7 until your kid grows up & leaves the nest. Even my parents have had to pretty much raise me again & I’m 35? I’m up when Kim leaves for whatever job she’s working at that day, so I’m up doing stuff before the clock says it’s 8:00am or 7:00am. I try to get stuff done ASAP. I’m always the last one in bed also. I’m in here looking for stuff I should put on this blog. I’m not complaining, but some people say to me “Oh Chris, I wish my life was as easy as your’s”. I don’t sit around here doing nothing all day.

I’m in a wheelchair, so I have to do some things differently than others. No big deal, it just takes me longer, but it gets faster the more I do the same task.

Thom Yorke (Radiohead singer) is working on music for Broadway.

http://consequenceofsound.net/2015/09/thom-yorke-pens-new-music-from-broadway-drama-old-times-listen/

I loved Radiohead’s first 3 albums, each 1 more than the previous release. Their 3rd album ‘OK Computer’ was a FANTASTIC album when it was released in the summer of 1997. Rolling Stone magazine took a readers poll, ‘OK Computer’ was voted as “The Best Album of All Time” just ahead of The Beatles ‘Revolver’. That doesn’t mean much to me, that means to me that 1 or more people liked it more than The Beatles album. Here’s a single from ‘OK Computer’………..

FACEBOOK, TWITTER, INSTAGRAM & EMAIL

All of these “social media” sites require one thing, email! You join a social media site & TONS of people totally forget that they have an email. I always check both, why? Because not everyone has a facebook, twitter, instagram, etc. account. Everybody on these sites has an email account! How often does anyone send you an email via one of these sites? I do because some people are a touch stubborn & refuse to use their email. What did you do before the invention of www.myspace.com? You used email probably. I get it, it’s a personal choice. Just remember that not everyone likes these sites. I use facebook mostly for these blogs & a handful of people who have problems with their email account.

This music blog was for those who like similar music as I, & those who don’t want to be on a social media site. If it wasn’t for this blog, I’d be long gone from facebook!

Last night’s baseball game between the Toronto Blue Jays 78W-59L & the Boston Red Sox 65W-72L prior to the game was a nail biter for me. Tied 1-1 into the 10th inning. Then the Toronto Blue Jay bats woke up & everything bounced Toronto’s way to win 5-1 in the end. I was nervous, I may have peed a bit on the couch. (Shh! Don’t tell Kim?)

I know baseball’s not for everyone, I get it. This has been an exciting time for the Blue Jays though! First time the fans have seen meaningful baseball in September since the early ’90s!

Today’s workout was brought to you by Dream Theater’s ‘Images & Words’ album!

Godsmack’s tour for 2015. I’ve never really listened to them other than seeing the “Voodoo” video on Much Music. I didn’t care much for that song so I never paid attention to them.

If Bruno Mars does the half time show at the Super Bowl, I might watch it? Last time I watched was because Prince did the half time show in the rain. I guess I did watch last year when it was Bruno Mars & the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

How to anger Spider-man fans. Either way is fine with me, but it’s not how the original Spider-man comics were written. That’s what will cause the anger of die hard Spider-man fans. He quit Spider-man, so why does he have a say in what happens in future Spider-man movies?
